In this tutorial we will create a Calculate Total Sum in Table Column using PHP. This code can calculate the sum of the product within the table column. The code itselt use MySQLi SUM() query to calculate the column in the database before sending to the HTML page. This a user-friendly program feel free to modify and use it to your system.

We will be using PHP as a scripting language that interpret in the webserver such as xamp, wamp, etc. It is widely use by modern website application to handle and protect user confidential information.

Getting Started:

First you have to download & install XAMPP or any local server that run PHP scripts. Here's the link for XAMPP server

And, this is the link for the bootstrap that i used for the layout design

Creating Database

Open your database web server then create a database name in it db_sum, after that click Import then locate the database file inside the folder of the application then click ok.

Creating the database connection

Open your any kind of text editor(notepad++, etc..). Then just copy/paste the code below then name it conn.php.

  1. <?php
  2. $conn=mysqli_connect("localhost", "root", "", "db_sum");
  4. if(!$conn){
  5. die("Error: Faile to connect to database!");
  6. }
  7. ?>

Creating The Interface

This is where we will create a simple form for our application. To create the forms simply copy and write it into your text editor, then save it as index.php.

  1. <!DOCTYPE html>
  2. <html lang="en">
  3. <head>
  4. <meta charset="UTF-8" name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"/>
  5. <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/bootstrap.css"/>
  6. </head>
  7. <body>
  8. <nav class="navbar navbar-default">
  9. <div class="containr-fluid">
  10. <a class="navbar-brand" href="<a href="">Sourcecodester</a>
  11. " rel="nofollow">">Sourcecodester</a>
  12. </a> </div>
  13. </nav>
  14. <div class="col-md-3"></div>
  15. <div class="col-md-6 well">
  16. <h3 class="text-primary">PHP - Calculate Total Sum in Table Column</h3>
  17. <hr style="border-top:1px dotted #ccc;"/>
  18. <form method="POST" action="add_product.php">
  19. <div class="form-inline">
  20. <label>Product</label>
  21. <input type="text" name="product" class="form-control" required="required"/>
  22. <label>Price</label>
  23. <input type="number" min="0" name="price" class="form-control" required="required"/>
  24. <button class="btn btn-primary" name="add">Add Product</button>
  25. </div>
  26. </form>
  27. <br /><br />
  28. <table class="table table-bordered">
  29. <thead class="alert-info">
  30. <tr>
  31. <th>Product</th>
  32. <th>Price</th>
  33. </tr>
  34. </thead>
  35. <tbody>
  36. <?php
  37. require_once 'conn.php';
  38. $query = mysqli_query($conn, "SELECT * FROM `product`") or die(mysqli_error());
  39. while($fetch = mysqli_fetch_array($query)){
  40. ?>
  41. <tr>
  42. <td><?php echo $fetch['product']?></td>
  43. <td align="right"><?php echo $fetch['price']?></td>
  44. </tr>
  45. <?php
  46. }
  47. ?>
  48. </tbody>
  49. <?php include 'total_sum.php'?>
  50. </table>
  51. </div>
  52. </body>
  53. </html>

Creating PHP Query

This code contains the php query of the application. This code will store the product information to the database server. To do that just copy and write this block of codes inside the text editor, then save it as add_product.php.

  1. <?php
  2. require_once 'conn.php';
  4. if(ISSET($_POST['add'])){
  5. $product = $_POST['product'];
  6. $price = $_POST['price'];
  8. mysqli_query($conn, "INSERT INTO `product` VALUES('', '$product', '$price')") or die(mysqli_error());
  10. header("location: index.php");
  11. }
  12. ?>

Creating the Main Function

This code contains the main function of the application. This code will automatically calculate the column total when the button is clicked. To make this just copy and write these block of codes below inside the text editor, then save it as shown below.

  1. <tfoot>
  2. <tr>
  3. <td align="right">Total</td>
  4. <td align="right">
  5. <?php
  6. if(!ISSET($_POST['sum'])){
  7. ?>
  8. <form method="POST" action="">
  9. <button class="btn btn-success" name="sum">Calculate Total</button>
  10. </form>
  11. <?php
  12. }else{
  13. $query = mysqli_query($conn, "SELECT SUM(price) AS total FROM `product`") or die(mysqli_error());
  14. $fetch = mysqli_fetch_array($query);
  15. ?>
  16. <label class="text-danger"><?php echo $fetch['total']?></label>
  17. <?php
  18. }
  19. ?>
  20. </td>
  21. </tr>
  22. </tfoot>
